Catalogue entry

This drawing in pen and black ink was made with the page turned horizontally.
Technical notes:
There is a grey colour trial at the top right relative to the drawing, perhaps for the monochrome study of Dunstanburgh on folios 86 verso–87 recto (D01607–D01608; Turner Bequest XL 84a–85).
